Default questions on installing things in the nzxt lexa case

ok so i just got this to replace my old case and im havingmajor trouble

well first when i try to put in my optical drives with those black screwless things on the sides it gets stuck on this thing near the back so it doesnt go fully in. Also my video card doesnt want to sit right witht the PCI slot on the case even though it is in on my mobo. any help?

Since you didn't leave this detail, did you or did you not take the front of the case off so all you have is the metal frame for insertion? I have this case and besides that, I don't have any idea why it wouldn't go in. If this isn't your problem, which I hope it isn't because it's common sense, try reattaching the clips in different positions and inserting it in a different bay. I don't recall having any problems at all inserting my optical drives. Also make sure you're using the correct clips for the optical drive.

Well, your loss I guess, if you could provide photos we could probably figure it out. The Lexa case is awesome, but I'm sorry you had this problem. I had none .
